WEEKENDEDITION After several embarrassing breaches, the head of security at One World Trade is out of a job.

David Velazquez — ex-director of the Newark FBI field office — joined the Durst Organization in August to lead security at the tower, according to the New York Post.

But just a month later, jumpers parachuted from the roof of the building and a teen from New Jersey also managed to sneak up to the antenna.

Velazquez has now resigned from his position for Durst. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
